Logan Nickel

MisCon 32 Panel Volunteer

Logan Nickel is the creator of RPHQ.org, a website dedicated to promoting and supporting roleplay in its many forms, as well as offering useful resources to help players improve their RP experiences. Known online as TheHumanFloyd, Logan has been interviewed by Zenimax Online Studios (the company responsible for The Elder Scrolls Online) and MMO-Champion.com for his passion and experience with the ever-growing world of online roleplaying. Logan's Youtube channel (Youtube.com/RoleplayHeadquarters) is best known for the popular "Roleplaying in MMOs: A Beginner's Guide", the first guide of its kind for using online games like World of Warcraft to tell stories and express oneself in the way tabletop gamers have been doing for decades. Roleplaying via forums, games, and email is a new territory for all of us, one that Logan hopes to help pioneer for future generations of RPers.

Sometimes, as a GM, you want to push your players to really dig down and develop creative uses for their abilities.
